#351/400. 750ml waxed and capped bottle into a Founders snifter. Shared by schen9303.

Pours a 1.5 finger foamy mocha colored head with low retention. Beer is moderately thin but pitch black. Lacing is stringy and sparse with moderate stick. Big legs. Very good.

Nose is chocolate, coffee, cocoa, booze, peat and rotting red fruit. Sweet and robust. Very aromatic. Enticingly good.

Opens chocolate, cocoa and roasted malt. Red fruit floats in and out of the background, sweetening the experience. Boozy throughout. Fudge. Some leather, wood and molasses at the end. Finishes sweet with a hot aftertaste. Nice complexity. Real deep.

Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation. Foamy and smooth in the mouth and goes down boozy and thick. Messy finish with a surprisingly clean aftertaste. Pretty nice. A touch carbonated.

I'm surprised at the low ratings of this one. There's nice complexity here and this beer really grew on me quickly. The flavors, although they're a little weird at first, combines nicely as this one warms. Worth seeking out.

Reviewed from notes. Appearance is identical to alpha klaus, black opaque with short tan head. The smell is hot with barrel character up front, the hoppiness from the base is there, but obviously has been aged a bit and has lost it's pop. Bitter chocolate notes come through along with syrupy cherry character. The taste is also hot with dark fruit character and plenty of oak. The carbonation seems a bit too high with a medium body. Overall, I enjoy the base beer by itself much more than this variant. The fruit and the barrel detract from the delicious hoppy porter that Alpha Klaus is.
